What Was New in oXygen XML Editor 11
October 9, 2009
There are changes in:
XSLT and XQuery
Documentation for XSLT Stylesheets [read more...]
The oXygen XSLT Documentation tool allows
you to generate full documentation for the XSLT stylesheet components in XHTML format,
including comprehensive annotations and cross references.
User-supplied descriptions can be specified either in the form of
XML comments or in a simple language, for which oXygen provides easy editing support
through special actions for inserting documentation and through content completion
assistance. Support for user-defined documentation languages can be added by updating
the conversion to XHTML to support those languages.
The XProc support includes editing, validation and execution through
reusable XProc scenarios. Besides editing in source mode, you can edit XProc
scripts in the Author mode, rendered with a nice visual
representation. oXygen XML Editor bundles Calabash as built-in engine but
other external XProc processors can be easily configured.
Open API for Integrating XProc Engines
oXygen XML Editor provides an open API to closely integrate an
XProc engine, both for XProc transformations and for validation support. The
built-in Calabash processor is integrated using this API.
Extended Large Documents Editing Support
Large XML documents can be opened for editing. For example, a 200MB
document can be opened in oXygen XML Editor using 512MB of memory (note that
these figures depend on the complexity of the markup). oXygen XML Editor will
detect large documents and automatically turn off or change the implementation for
some editor functions, to reduce the memory usage.
Extended Large Documents Viewing Support (up to 10 GB)
The large file viewer can open files up to 10 GB in read-only
XML Author (Visual Editing) Mode
Improved Author Editing Experience for Non-Technical Users
The Author mode has location tooltips and current
element highlights that help the user to identify the position in the edited
document. By default it turns on a more constrained editing mode that, for
instance, avoids inserting text in the elements that do not allow text nodes or
inserting elements not allowed by the schema.
Track Changes Annotations
When editing with track changes on, it is possible to annotate each
change with comments.
Support for Embedded SVG Images
Embedded SVG images are now rendered in the XML Author
Allow Multiple Toolbars with Custom Actions
You can define up to four toolbars containing custom actions at
document type level.
API for Text Highlights Management
Developers can programmatically highlight or find highlighted text
regions from the Author mode.
Integrated DITA OT 1.5
oXygen XML Editor includes version 1.5 (M19) of DITA OT which
supports the DITA 1.2 specification.
DITA 1.2 Support
Some of the DITA 1.2 features are supported. These include insertion
and visualisation in the Author mode of conref ranges and
conkeyrefs, insertion and navigation for keyrefs in the context of the current
DITA Map-Aware Find and Replace
The find and replace operation can scan recursively all the files
referenced by a DITA map that is opened in the DITA Maps Manager view. The action
is available in contextual menu of the DITA Map Manager View.
DITA Map-Aware Spell Checker
The spell checker can scan recursively all the files referenced by a
DITA map that is opened in the DITA Maps Manager view. The action is available in
contextual menu of the DITA Map Manager view.
Render and Visually Edit MathML in the Author Mode
MathML equations are rendered in the Author
equations can be edited with the oXygen built-in MathML editor or with the
more complex and powerful MathFlow editor from Design Science. To use the later
one, you must have a licensed installation of the MathFlow SDK
MathML Support in DocBook [read more...]
There are templates available for creating DocBook documents
with MathML support. The MathML equations included in DocBook documents are rendered
in the PDF and XHTML output of the DocBook transformations.
User Interface Improvements
The menus and toolbars were improved. Some actions were added or
removed in the menu bar and in the views (Working Copy, Synchronize, Repository,
History) so that the most used actions can be accessed faster.
Specify Working Copy Format at Checkout
Sometimes a working copy is used with multiple SVN application that may
not support the latest working copy format. For compatibility with such
applications the working copy format can be specified at checkout: SVN 1.4, SVN
1.5 or SVN 1.6.
Upgrade and Downgrade Working Copy Format
If the user does not want to upgrade the working copy format to the
latest format he can do that later with the Upgrade action. A downgrade action is
available for users who need compatibility with applications that do not support
the latest working copy format.
WebDAV Sources Available in Data Source Explorer View
The files and folders available in a WebDAV source can be browsed and
opened using the Data Source Explorer view.
More Flexible Transformation and Validation Scenarios
There is no dependency between the current edited file and the
scenarios available for transformation or validation, thus users can apply any
transformation or validation scenario on any file. Moreover, the Project view
allows to associate scenarios on a folder or on the selected files.
Validation Scenarios Can Specify a Schema
Besides the validation engine, you can specify also the schema (XML
Schema, Relax NG, DTD, NVDL, NRL, Schematron) that should be used from an XML
Spell Checking on a Set of Files
Spell checking can be applied on multiple files and folders from the
Digital Signature Without Key Info
An XML document can be signed without including the key info in the
signed document. The signature of an XML document that does not include key info
can be verified.
Resolve XML Schema Location Based on Namespace
The location of an XML Schema imported in other schema can be resolved
using an XML catalog based only on the schema namespace when the schema location
is not specified.
Automatic/Easy Setup for Antenna House Formatter
An installation of the Antenna House FOP v4 or v5 can be automatically
detected or easily configured for performing FO to PDF transformations and for
DITA map transformations executed with DITA OT.
Update oNVDL to Jing-Trang
The NVDL implementation from oNVDL was moved to jing-trang and
oXygen XML Editor was updated to use the latest jing-trang version
Updated Saxon Transformer to Version 9.2
Saxon 9 SA was updated to the latest version Saxon 9.2 Enterprise
Edition. oXygen XML Editor supports also Saxon 9.2 Professional Edition and
Updated TEI schemas to Version 1.4.1
The latest version of TEI schemas were added.
Updated DocBook XSL Stylesheets to Version 1.75.2
The latest version of DocBook XSL stylesheets were added.
